MOLINE, Ill. – DHCU Community CU has installed Microsoft Office 365 from its core processing provider, Jack Henry & Associates’ Symitar.
“Exchange licensing, routine upgrades, and general IT maintenance are costly, but Office 365 eliminates those expenses and enables our tech staff to focus on other projects. We also can be assured that we have a reliable service network by entrusting all support to Symitar,” said Nadine Coon, IT manager for the $450-million credit union.
Since moving to Office 365, DHCU Community CU said it has transformed its operating environment. Simple administrative tasks no longer are cumbersome and the credit union said it has gained efficiencies throughout the institution. It now has access to instant messaging, video conferencing, remote documents, and other features that reportedly streamline employee communication and productivity.
Jack Henry announced the availability of Office 365 through a Microsoft syndication partnership in June 2011. The platform combines Microsoft Office Professional Plus, Microsoft Exchange Online, Microsoft SharePoint Online, Microsoft Office Web Apps, and the Lync Online instant messaging and collaboration tool.
